What is it with the '71 Dead and guitar tuning? Phil and Jerry are way off for a really long time without noticing. Couldn't even keep listening to Playin'. Can they hear thesmelves?
It goes on like that for a while except for a great Good Lovin' and a little bit of other good stuff, and then...ah, yes, the chopped up Other One, and I CAN see why this one was diced and sliced: only the Jam and Other One (2) are really good, the rest is OK/not bad.
My view: this one's not worth Charlie Miller's time.
Subject: The Other One Quandary
Yes it is a pain when someone splits up certain songs for what ever reason. But there is a simple fix. Download the Audacity software (it's free) and it is a fantastic way to manipulate music. I use it to splice tracks togeather, split some into two tracks, remove unwanted dead air, etc. If you really wanted to do it right, the whole show should be as 1 track with no cuts, splits, deviations, and other assorted anomalies. But the limitations of this method are such that most mp3 devices will not fast forward thru a track. Think about it. If you wanted to hear a particular track from this show and it was one track, you'll be listening to many tunes before you get to the one you want to hear. So download the software and have fun tweeking your music.
Subject: favorite year
Mid point of my favorite Grateful Dead year - no more Dark Star/Saint Stephen, and not yet Jack Straw, Brown-Eyed Women, Tennessee Jed or Ramble On Rose. Exciting nonetheless. BUT -
Why is The Other One split up into EIGHT separate tracks? This an extreme example of something that's been bothering me for some time now. Even when it's functioning flawlessly, this site does not provide seamless transfers from one track to the next. Neither does any other kind of system I know of.
Why can't we hear it the way they played it? China/Rider should be one track, so should Fade Away/Going Down the Road/Fade Away.
Charlie Miller, why don't you take the lead on this?
The sound quality is excellent, but I'm going to deduct a star for the way The Other One is minced.
